Active duty Navy Commander and 2011 Harvard Extension School Master of Liberal Arts (A.L.M.) grad Ted Johnson has been selected to participate in the prestigious White House Fellows program. Of the 15 chosen to participate, more than half hold degrees from Harvard, with Johnson being the first Harvard Extension School graduate selected for the program.
Johnson applied for the fellowship while completing his A.L.M. thesis in international relations. He was selected as part of the class which began the fellowship in August 2011 with a placement in the Department of Energy. Prior to his placement, he served on the faculty at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, RI, where he was a cyberspace and information operations military professor.
Says Johnson upon receiving this opportunity, “I hope to serve as further proof of the invaluable experience the Extension School affords.”
Founded in 1964, the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships is one of America’s most prestigious programs for leadership and public service. White House Fellowships offer exceptional young men and women first-hand experience working at the highest levels of the Federal government.
